• The objective of community schools is to focus on the children's development. This is like a triangle that places children at the center, surrounded by families, communities and the following elements:

    • A strong core instructional program designed to help all students meet high academic standards
    • Expanded learning opportunities designed to enrich the learning environment for students and their families
    • A full range of health, mental health and social services designed to promote children’s well-being and remove barriers to learning.
